The Southern Rhodesians got really really mad! The reputation of their great wonder was being sullie

Victoria Falls replica at 1939 World's Fair

Robyn Miller has images and information about Rhodesia's fantastic entry to the 1939 World's Fair.
Picture 9-2 They put Victoria Falls in a huge room (or a scale creation of it) pumping 60,000 gallons of water over the edge per minute! But it came to a sad end, due to nearby "depraved" activities (at the fair).

The Southern Rhodesians got really really mad! The reputation of their great wonder was being sullied – lowered to the height of mere eroticism... "Where's Victoria?" the visitors began to ask, "We want her, we want to see the voluptuous but seductive Victoria... from Rhodesia!"
